Denny's (page 4)

The Denny's buildings shown on this page and the next were also designed by Armet & Davis around 1964. They called the design the "cupcake". I have nicknamed this style the "crown roof" type. For more, see this website.

This former Denny's in Junction City was still operating as a Denny's in 2009. The building housed Napoli's Italian Restaurant when this photo was taken in 2010. By 2012, the restaurant had closed. Around 2015, the building housed the Greek Heroes restaurant. That had closed by 2016. By 2018, the building had been demolished.

There are many other Denny's crown-style buildings still operating around the country including those shown above. The Riverside location was built in 1967. The building was sold in 2017 but Denny's signed another 20-year lease at that point. [King City map]; [Modesto map]; [Salinas map]; [San Diego map]; [Emeryville map]; [Riverside map]; [El Paso map]

Like most of these crown-style buildings, the Crescent City building and sign have been repainted beige and remodeled slightly. In 2005, this location had a green roof. [map]
